moved for leave to introduce Bill C-414, an act to establish verbal abuse prevention week.
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to introduce my private member's bill which will establish the first week of every October as verbal abuse prevention week.
Verbal abuse is a national problem and is present within all our communities. It exists in our schools, in our workplaces and even in our homes.
My hope is that the bill will serve to raise awareness and promote education about the negative consequences of verbal abuse.
